Detailed Description

In September 2020, field crews in the USGS Nevada Water Science Center measured spring flow and collected water-quality samples at locations around the Soldier Meadows Spring Complex in Nevada. The spring complex is the only home of a small fish called the desert dace. USGS is collaborating with local and federal partners to map and monitor water availability and water quality conditions, including temperature, in order to assess the extent of fish habitat and to inform decisions by resource managers in the region.
